The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced today the names of the 36 finalists for the 2014 NFF High School National Scholar-Athlete Awards, which will honor one young man from each of the country’s five regions as the best and the brightest for their accomplishments as athletes, scholars and citizens at the high school level. The five winners, who are now playing college football, are being recognized for their previous accomplishments in high school and will be announced the week of Oct. 9.

 

With 120 chapters and more than 12,000 members, the NFF Chapter Network impacts more than 500,000 student-athletes at 4,800 high schools in 47 states each year. The centerpiece of their efforts are the annual chapter awards banquets, which recognize more than 3,500 of the nation’s top scholar-athlettes and distribute more than $1 million in scholarships. From this pool of 3,500 scholar-athletes, the chapters have nominated 36 individuals in 2014 as finalists for the highly sought-after NFF High School National Scholar-Athlete Awards.

During the week of Oct. 9, a national committee will select and announce the five winners, one from each region. The five winners will travel to New York City to be honored during the NFF Chapter Awards Luncheon, presented by Under Armour, on Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. First bestowed in 1991, the NFF National High School Scholar-Athlete Awards have become one of the most prestigious high school honors in the country. Criteria for the award include but are not limited to academic achievement, athletic accolades and community involvement.
